Vijay Hazare Wrap: Haryana Move to Second Spot, Rayudu's 69 Takes Hyderabd to Win

Rain played a spoilsport once again in the Vijay Hazare Trophy as in the match between Mumbai & Andhra only 8 overs of play was possible, while in the battle between Delhi and Maharashtra, the match was abandoned without a ball being bowled.

As for other venues, where play was possible Arunachal Pradesh thumped Sikkim in the plate division, while Haryana came out on top in the encounter against Baroda.

Here is the wrap from Saturday’s games:

Elite Group A & B: Sumit’s All-round Show Takes Haryana to Victory

In a low scoring match at Vadodara, Baroda succumbed to their second loss, this time at the hands of Haryana by 58 runs. After opting to bat first, all Haryana could manage was 217, courtesy 3/46 by Krunal Pandya. 48 each by Ankit Kumar and Pramod Chandila looked to take Haryana to a respectable total. But Sumit Kumar had other plans and scored an excellent 58 from 66 balls to lift the team’s total.

Come the second innings, Sumit shone again and bagged 5/14 to rattle the opposition and take them to a win. All the Baroda batsmen failed, except for Aditya Waghmode, who scored 65 off 94 balls, but that didn’t prove enough in the end.

In another match, Vidarbha surrendered meekly to Punjab as the latter won by seven wickets. After opting to bowl, Punjab’s Karan Kalia took 4/32 to help dismiss the opposition for 155. From there on it was an easy chase for Punjab as Gurkeerat Singh Mann scored an unbeaten 51 to take his side home.

While in the match at Bengaluru, Jharkhand trounced Hyderabad by six wickets in a rain-affected match. In the 34-over match, skipper Ambati Rayudu led from the front and scored a brilliant 69 from 54 balls to take his team to 192/7. But Kumar Deobrat (56) and Saurabh Tiwary’s unbeaten 61 helped Jharkhand reach home with two balls to spare.

Plate Group: Samarth Seth Smashes 155 For Arunachal Pradesh

The biggest score of the day came from Seth’s bat as he scored 155 from 147 to help his side chase down 269 against Sikkim. After batting first, Sikkim scored 268 for 7 with Ashish Thapa (68) and Yashpal Singh (71), both scoring fifties. But their bowlers could not repeat the show and fell prey to some extraordinary hitting by Seth, whose innings included 15 fours and seven sixes.

In another low scoring match, Meghalaya won by narrow three wickets against Manipur, who were bundled out for a paltry 90. Sanjay Yadav bagged three wickets for Meghalaya. In reply, Meghalaya didn’t have a smooth chase and kept losing wickets at regular intervals. But Puneet Bisht’s 27 off 29 balls proved crucial in the end to take Meghalaya home.
